Book Tour: The Killer Retreat by Tracy Weber

Fellow Page-Turners,

Today I am thrilled to be part of the blog tour for The Killer Retreat by Tracy Weber hosted by Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours. I received an ebook of this novel. I did not receive any compensation for reviewing this novel nor was I obligated to write a good review.

About the author Tracy Weber:
Tracy Weber is the author of the award-winning Downward Dog Mysteries series featuring yoga teacher Kate and her feisty German shepherd, Bella. Tracy loves sharing her passion for yoga and animals in any form possible. The second book in her series, A Killer Retreat, is available January 8, 2015, by Midnight Ink.
Tracy and her husband live in Seattle with their challenging yet amazing German shepherd Tasha. When she’s not writing, Tracy spends her time teaching yoga, walking Tasha, and sipping Blackthorn cider at her favorite ale house.

And now for the synopsis of this great book:

When Kate Davidson gets an offer to teach yoga classes at the Elysian Springs resort, she jumps at the opportunity--even if it means enduring the wedding ceremony of the center's two caretakers. But avoiding the M-word turns out to be the least of Kate's problems when a wedding guest is found floating face-down in the resort's hot tub, shortly after a loud, public fight with Kate.

The police pick Kate as their number-one suspect, so she teams up with her boyfriend Michael, best friend Rene, and German shepherd sidekick Bella to find the real killer. They must solve the crime before the police arrest Kate, or her next gig may last a lifetime--behind bars.


You can buy on Amazon  and can add it on Goodreads

And now without further ado, here are my thoughts on the novel: 

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: I didn't really have any expectations going into this book. I had never heard of the author before or the series. All I knew was that it was going to have some type of mystery.

I enjoyed the book more than I thought I would. The writing was engaging and the characters were exceptionally quirky. The book didn't quite grip me like I wanted it to, but it was an entertaining read.

I loved how Weber developed her story and thought the ending was a great end. I hadn't realized this was a sequel until after I had finished, so it's definitely reader friendly. 

If you're looking for a quirky sleuth, then this book will be the perfect fit. 

So why 3 stars? It didn't really stand out, but I like I said I did enjoy it. 

Can I read the series out of order? Yes, like I said. I didn't realize it was a sequel at first. 

The Wrap-up: All in all an enjoyable, fun read. 

Love,

Danica Page
